Cantilever Presses


The RG cantilevered press represents the culmination of over a decade of manufacturing flexo presses, wax coaters, differential coaters, gravure stations and a broad variety of custom processing equipment. The result is a very simple versatile print station that embraces the latest direct drive servo technology to provide a rapid production solution to the modern short run converter.

With a six color job change performed in just under 11 minutes and automatic register presetting a standard feature make-ready time is minimized and time in production is maximized.

With simple touch screen operation, graphic web path diagrams, and a press that performs setup and print register automatically the operator is able to focus more on the finished product and less on being a make ready artist.

Standard Features

  • Direct servo driven sleeved Anilox roller.
  • Direct servo driven sleeved Plate cylinder.
  • Servo plate to anilox adjustment.
  • Manual or Servo Impression to plate adjustment.
  • Floating impression allows tissue, poly, and board to run back to back on any production day.
  • Each station has differential anilox speed adjustments for ink or coating volume adjustment. When combined with our Coat Weight Monitoring system any station can provide a specific coat weight per bond ream.
  • Automatic preregister is a standard feature that uses a pin on the plate cylinder to locate the plate sleeve and determine the new servo position for registered color to color print before the web starts to move.
  • The Direct Register feature that is optional on our geared presses is now a standard feature and allows the operator to tell the press exactly how far to move any color.
  • Remote Diagnostics for machine updates and maintenance assistance.
